ADVERTISEMENTS 1 9 2 5 (Continuedfrom page 121) OH! WHAT AN ASSEMBLY! We had the most mar¬ velous time today. The “Mask and Wig” club of the University of Pennsylvania was in town on their way to Buffalo, they gave an impromptu perfor¬ min ' mance of parts from their play, or what ever 20 you want to call it, “Juan of Arkansas”. It was perfectly wonderful! And how they can sing and dance. There were some tenor solos by members of the chorus, and they sang one, an original composition, that made you laugh ’till your sides ached. They had to give three encores ofit. And the fellow who played the saws—you never heard anything like it in all your life! It was great music, too. Then Mr. Me Clellan of the English department of the college gave a speech on college life. Even that was good. Everything was. I wish we could have a few more assemblies like that. I just heard today that Miss See died. She’s our teacher, and such a darling. It doesn’t seem right. She was such a wonderful artist—she was painting the Murals in the hall—on the second floor April across from the library. The last panel 21 isn’t done; I wonder if anyone will ever finish it? My, I wish I were as clever as she! and she studied for years. She was one of the first pupils in the freehand drawing and painting courses at Mechanics—her father was one of the founders, William See, the architect, you know—and she studied under Dow, Chase, and Du Mond. I wonder how many people know that, or appreciate her? 1926 TEA IN ASSEMBLY. The girls of June 1926 had a tea in the assembly today for parents and such things. It was rather fun, but it’s an awfully awkward place to hold a cup in. The arms of the seats aren’t arc ' L big enough to set anything on, so all they 7 7 do is get in the way. They had some funny stuff on the stage tho’, so it wasn’t so bad. COMBINED GLEE CLUBS HOLD CONCERT. It really was an awfully spiffy affair. I mean it was good. You could tell that just by looking at the programme. First, the combined clubs sang “The May Singer”, appropriate, wasn’t it? Then 21 Jerome Smith sang “Morning”and “Cindy”. Jerry is the most darling tenor! The boys’ club sang “Sea Fever”, and “The Garden of lour Heart”. They were awfully good. Vi Rankin sang “Danny Boy”, and “Can’t Remember”. I think she’s perfectly adorable, and she has the loveliest voice! She simply made me cry when she was singing Danny Boy”. Frank Stevens, he has the most gorgeous tenor voice, sang “The Nightingale”, and “Call Me Back”. Then, the Instrumental Ensemble played ‘ La Paloma , and “Pas des Escharpes” from Ballet Symonique, “Callirhoe” (isn’t that the most awful tongue twister?).

ADVERTISEMENTS •♦48 ( Continued from page 123) 1 9 2 7 MISS TRIPP IN PAPER, (Good heavens I haven’t written a thing in here for over a year. But then, there hasn’t been anything special worth writing about. Oh well — I mean her picture was.) The September faculty is going to give a play next Friday 26 and Saturday. The name of the play is “Tweedles”. The proceeds (if there are any) go to the Students’ Scholarship fund. Miss Tripp is the “director”, that’s why she had her picture in the paper. WEST HIGH ALUMNI TO HOLD REUNION. Tomorrow at 12:30 the alumni are going to start their reunion. West graduated its first class in 1906, which gave it five or six alumni. It has been adding December to them ever since until now it has 2,763 of 21 ’em. When I get out in another half a’ dozen years or so, it will have another one. 1928 FORMER WEST HIGH STUDENTS AMONG NEW PHI BETA’S. They’ve just announced the election of four men, and twelve women, from the U. of R. to Phi Beta Kappa. Four of them were graduates April from West, Arthur A. Moehlman, Adelaide 25 E. Dorn, Florence E. Swinburne, and Dorothy Wellington. I’d say we were pretty well represented. ‘THANK YOU’ IS VERY PLEASING. I mean the Junior play was. It was simply delicious. LeRoy Gates was a “preacher” in it, and he sure knew his sermons. Phyllis Holton was a “coy French April maid” who “got her man”, and how she 28 did! Ray Doyle was the “man”—with lots of money. Oh, Man! And Bob Metzdorf was a drunk. I never saw anything so funny. He ought to go on the stage. I mean he really had! The rest of the cast was Marcia Randall, Evelyn Millner, Betty Brigham, Jean Boyd, Dick Bennett, Bob Fagan, Burton Schaefer, Slater Conn, Alfred Delgado, Raymond Barker, Bob McCormack, Bob Leinen, and Franklyn Hutchinson. OCCIDENT ISSUES SCANDAL SHEET! They have finally printed their “Dusty Mirror” and is it good?! It’s perfectly hilarious. On the front page they had Mr. Spinning advocating hooped-skirts. Im- June agine! Inside they had the craziest stuff, a 9 faculty elopement (which wasn’t true of course), a picture of an auto, taken about twenty years ago, that they said was Mr. Bennett s new car, a picture of Wilfred Despard who was supposed to be a mumbledy-pegger, and perfectly screaming articles about Marble’s Marble Team, and Sauer’s Sling-shot Shooters.
